1st time traveling to Jamaica and I notice weather.com shows rain and thunderstorms all week next week when my wife and I will be there. Is this common and "passing storms" for only a few hours of the day, or should I plan on coming back with no sun tan??
It all depends...we are live at CSA right now and the weather has been fantastic with no rain. There were a lot more clouds and wind today though so it might mean the storms are coming :-(
We were at CN the same time in 2009 and when the weather forecast said thunderstorms it rained almost 7 straight days out of our 10! I've heard from other people that it is unusual for that to happen.
So far we have had 3 days of way better weather than any day we had in 2009.
Cross our finger! Either way it will not ruin your vacation.
From May- Sept the forecast usually calls for thunderstorms every afternoon. On our last trip it was predicted to rain everyday. It would get a little cloudy starting around 4-5 and then fade off as the sun set. The only rain we got just happened to be the night of the beach party which got moved to the Palms. I wouldn't worry too much about it.
